Criticizing distributism
Regular readers know my line: Fine. Make a good product millions want to buy and we’ll talk. Like what passes for Catholic social teaching (not doctrine: sanctified welfare state where the king, Franco or the Christian socialist party makes family values the law and controls the economy; if you believe in the market you’re just selfish), not heresy but no. That said, Rod Dreher says:
My suspicion of utopianism makes me hesitant – and Joe (and Couretas) are right that there’s a lot about distributism that is utopian. Nevertheless × 2, I believe that there are some useful insights about work, economy, and human nature, both individual and social, that we could take from distributism and its decentralist view.
